Poor drainage means water pools here when there is a lot of rain

There is a grate in the road that goes along the side of our house and around the back to the garages, just off of Green Close. Water frequently pools around the grate when it rains, flooding the corner of the road. It has never impeded access since I've lived here (2 years), but I worry that if the rain is more severe then the flooding could be worse.

I believe the drains along this row of terraces sometimes get blocked, and there has been a pumping lorry of some kind once or twice in the last year. So this might be related to that problem.
